You can read about the unfolding scandal around Karl Rove saying that after 9/11 liberals wanted to “prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers” at americablog.org. That’s enough to piss me off mightily. But what pisses me off even more is how Scott McLellan can possibly say this about how Democrats would dare to be outraged by such a slur:
MR. McCLELLAN: Well, I think that they [Democrats] are just trying to engage in partisan attacks. Karl was simply talking about different philosophies, and we should be talking about what we stand for and how we want to move forward. We should be talking about what the different visions are and what the different ideas are, and that’s what he was doing….
I’m sorry, who is engaging in partisan attacks here? Just what about Rove saying that liberals wanted to respond to 9/11 with therapy is not a partisan attack, Scott? Reading the transcript is like reading Through the Looking Glass all over again.
